Other Resources on Campus - Part 3 & Adventures in Oral Advocacy

Posted by Library Blog on 03/27/2015 at 08:37 AM

A few weeks ago, the Legal Beagle visited the RWU Architecture Library and its exciting collection. Not only do law students have access to the collection at the Architecture Library, but also to the collection of the University Library, located in the Learning Commons.

Using the University Library’s collection, law students can find print and electronic interdisciplinary research resources.  In addition, the University Library’s collection also contains bestsellers and popular fiction. The University Library is the home of Media.Tech and also hosts special events open to all students. For example, if you are looking to take your mind off your upcoming exams, consider attending a talk by the 2010 Pulitzer Prize Winning Author Paul Harding.

To borrow a book from the University Library or to use one of their electronic resources from an off-campus location, a law student must first register his/her student ID in person with the University Library.

And, speaking of signing up for things…

With Legal Practice Oral Arguments about to begin, consider LexisNexis Courtroom Cast, a resource available through the Law Library. To create your free student account, click here and then proceed to the “Sign Up” link at the top of the screen. Courtroom Cast provides easy access to footage of real trials, audio files of selected significant opinions, and video clips to help students learn evidence, trial practice and oral advocacy. Courtroom Cast is easy to sign-up for and easy to use.
